As mentioned on the homepage, Perran News has been the village newspaper for Perranwell Station and Perranarworthal (Cornwall, UK) since 1986. For the last 31 years it has been provided free to readers thanks to the generous support of our advertisers and supporters. At the end of 2016, 310 issues had been published.

If you would like to contribute to Perran News by providing an article or a letter, please contact Mark Gripper, Editor of Perran News: markgripper@gmail.com. If you send articles electronically could you not include fancy fonts or complicated formatting, the simpler the better, thanks. If you handwrite articles please make them as clear and legible as possible particularly unusual words or we may make mistakes. Leave handwritten material in the red box at the village shop. 

Perran News is distributed to over 700 villagers each month. Coordinating Perran News involves a large number of willing unpaid volunteers to distribute it. If you would like to be part of the team, we always welcome new help. Please contact Sarah Matthews, Perran News Distributor, via email: afinacommunications@gmail.com.
